Melanie Clear is set to be a RIBA Awards judge. These particular awards and prizes are the most rigorously judged awards for architectural excellence in the industry. No award or prize is given unless the project has been visited by at least one jury. All awards are judged by award-winning architects and relevant lay assessors. Juries assess design excellence irrespective of style, size or complexity, taking into account constraints of budget, brief and timetable while being sensitive to the economic and social contexts of each project.
The shortlisting panel will discuss all the awards entries and decide on a shortlist for the regional awards jury to visit later in the year.
